    Welcome to the first episode of Don't Step on the Bluebells! Host Amanda Parker introduces listeners to her podcast focused on personal growth, healing, and transformation. Amanda explains that she will be sharing her own journey as well as introducing experts in intuitive healing modalities. Each episode will provide practical techniques and inspiration to create meaningful change in your life.


    In this episode, Amanda shares her story of discovering alternate healing when traditional medicine failed to cure her stress-induced skin condition. This opened her mind and led her to Reiki, meditation, and eventually coaching others through transformation. She emphasizes that there's no "one size fits all" process but that change is possible if you get clear on your vision. Amanda invites listeners to pick one area of life they want to improve, rate it on a scale of 1-10, and brainstorm how to move one step forward.
